Jord? L??pez has several offers on the table, and it seems that he wants to pick the one coming from La Coru?a. The main reason is the presence of Joaqu?n Caparr??s in the Galician squad. Meanwhile, the option of Nen? seems to be fading away, because Alav?s' president is asking too much for him. Uche is another player that is still appearing in the headlines.

It is speculated that Lendoiro is trying to incorporate a second pivote to the squad (Juan Rodr?guez was the first one). Coach Caparr??s already has four options to cover the position: 'Toro' Acu?a, Duscher, Sergio and De Guzm??n. But since Acu?a doesn't count for the Sevillan trainer, and with Depor's president trying to sell Duscher, the spot will need one more incorporation in order to complete the list of four choices for the job.

Lendoiro was looking for a candidate in the market, and it was the same Caparr??s who recommended an interesting option: Jordi L??pez. The 25-year-old player has only participated in 19 matches in la liga season. Sevilla's officials told him that he would live a similar situation in the next campaign and for that reason he decided to search for another club in order to enjoy of more opportunities to play.

Celta and Osasuna presented offers to him, both of which will play in Europe on the next season, but Jordi seems to prefer La Coru?a. Sportpaper AS wrote that the presence of Joaqu?n Caparr??s in the squad is the decisive factor to take this decision. Although Jordi has made his decision, Deportivo still has to negotiate with Sevilla in order to concrete the signing. It's speculated that Sevila wants at least €1.5 million for the midfielder.

Sportparer Deporte Campe??n reported yesterday that Alav?s' president, Dimitry Piterman, is asking €5 million for Nen? (24), the same source claims that Deportivo isn't prepared to offer this amount. The same player has said that he wants to come to Depor, but if both clubs doesn't reach an agreement about the price to pay, the operation will not take place.

The war for Ikechukwu Uche (22) is just starting. According to the media in Huelva the Nigerian striker wants to leave the Andalucian club. His agents have already talked with the president Francisco Mendoza about his desire of joining Deportivo. But Lendoiro hasn't presented an offer for the striker. Mendoza is upset because the Galicians have started to talk with the player without his permission. He maintains the position of asking €17 million for Uche and Lendoiro will have a hard job trying to reduce this amount.
